Does anyone know of any good modern poets?

    Every book shop that I have ever found has a SERIOUS lack of modern poetry and, being a passionate and eager poet myself, I'm super eager to get my hands on some good books! Or even just internet links to interesting websites or poets?
    I get my weekly fix by attending poetry readings but if someone can help me with this dilemma, I will be very much appreciative! Thanks.

      The greatest modern poets are T.S Eliot and Ezra Pound. T.S. Eliot's greatest works are The Waste Land, The Hollow Men, Ash Wednesday, Four Quartets. These are easily available on every bookstore. Other important poets are ee cummings, W.H. Auden, Stephen spender, Dylan Thomas, George Barker.

    There is a vast number of writers at Writing.com including me where they write also sort of articles, from short stories, poetry and they expect people to give their best because they do judge you and rate you.

    If you wish, next time you're on You Tube run a search on John Siddique - an excellent contemporary poet.

    I do not consider myself a poet much less even a good modern poet, however, I am sure that you can find all sorts of poetry on HubPages as well as the Internet for that matter. I hope you find what you are looking for. smile

    Monte Merrick is a very good contemporary poet as well as writer.  I like alternate poet and kflippen who are here on hubpages.

    A cherished moment
    is not afraid
    to give words
    a will
    by way of the writing hand.

    Great poets paint with words.

    Francesca Lia Block has a couple decent books out there, such as "The Rose and the Beast" and "Psyche", in which the stories are told in a very "Into the Dust" fashion, but she's not for everyone.

    I like her, but I've met several people who don't...
